Special Saturday card set at Cal Expo
At 0h03, on February 10, 2024 • By CAL EXPO
A $20,000 California Sire Stakes for 4-year-old mares that brings out Stevies Girl and Made Of Misschief heads the marquee on a special Saturday night (Feb. 10) program at Cal Expo.
There are 12 races on tap under the Watch and Wager LLC banner with first post at 8:45 p.m.
A reminder there will be no racing on Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 11), with the regular Friday/Sunday schedule returning next week.
Stevies Girl is a daughter of Wind Me Up who was bred by Barbara Arnstine and she co-owns with Steve Chambers and trainer Kathie Plested.
She will be making her first appearance since competing in the $65,000 Championship at Running Aces in mid-September and had a sharp qualifier here last week with Mooney Svendsen.
Made Of Misschief is also making her first start since that September 16 contest at Running Aces for owner/breeder Lanae Hernandez and trainer Bob Johnson with Luke Plano at the controls.
She looked to be in need of her qualifying mile here and should be very much at home with this group.
Trainer Rene Goulet will send out a pair in the main event with Cenalta Token and Cenalta Memories representing the barn. Jake Cutting will give directions behind the former while Goulet will be handling the lines aboard Cenalta Memories.
Completing the field are the Bevan Perriton-trained Chandon with Nick Roland and Hot N Fancy from the Emilio Cisneros shedrow with Chip Lackey doing the honors.
